This great meal gives a nice change to the boring old chicken breast
This is a great mid week meal, filling yet healthy.

It's a great twist on the print old chicken breast. I love chicken Kiev and cordon bleu but don't eat them as to how unhealthy they are, so when I do want them I make this instead :)
